SOLVED FOG r8020 unable to deploy image (test environment)

  • Moderator

    I quick registered a computer as well as hand registered a new computer for testing. I went and deployed an image to this computer but the deploy task threw an error in the web gui.

    Failed to create deployment tasking for the following hosts
    JIMBOB Failed to start deployment tasking
    Type: 8, File: /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogmanagercontroller.class.php, Line: 59, Message: Undefined variable: whereArray, Host:, Username: fog_user

    I tried to schedule a capture task and a similar error was thrown in the apache error log but not on the web gui.

    Deleting and reinstalling the location plugin resolved this issue. Its possible that I had something wrong with the location settings ( I was testing the windows storage node in this environment before ) or something was wrong with the location plugin and was reset when I reinstalled it.

    Marking this solved.

    On a side note. The hostinfo.php query page called from inside the FOS client returned the needed kernel parameters. So I think the concept of usb booting info FOS imaging is looking brighter.

    @Wayne-Workman I removed the location plugin and the issue went away. Lets see what happens when I add it back in.

  • @george1421 Well those look important. Although I have no idea what they mean lol.

    Using svn you can roll back to specific revisions to find where it was working like this: svn -r xxx up

    @Wayne-Workman I so wanted to be a wiseguy here and say that I did check the error log (and I did when I posted, there was only complaints about not having a timezone set).

    But this time there is something wrong with the storage node configuration??

  • @george1421 I know it’s tough when it’s YOUR problem, check the apache error logs?

    Still no joy after the update. I tried to deploy to all 3 systems previously working in the test system with the same results.

    FWIW I get the same error when I query the new hostinfo.php page (was working on the usb boot fos client where I first found the error).

  • I say update. I think the error is an attempt to locate a value in the DB that simply doesn’t exist. Therefore the query itself is failing and nothing is being returned to the whereArrayAnd variable.

    whelp that wasn’t it. Fixing that did some crazy things to the web gui.

    Ah, spotted it.

                 (count($whereArray) ? sprintf('WHERE %s%s',implode(sprintf(' %s ',$whereOperator),$whereArray),($isEnabled ? sprintf(' AND %s',$isEnabled) : '')) : ($isEnabled ? sprintf('WHERE %s',$isEnabled) : '')),
                (count($whereArrayAnd) ? (count($whereArray) ? sprintf('AND %s',implode(sprintf(' %s ',$whereOperator),(array)$whereArrayAnd)) : sprintf('WHERE %s',implode(sprintf(' %s ',$whereOperator),(array)$whereArrayAnd))) : ''),

    Looks like the (count($whereArray) should be (count($whereArrayAnd) as in the second line.
